In March 2014, the Ebola outbreak in West Africa was first reported. By October 2014, it had become the largest and deadliest occurrence of the disease.

Over 4,500 people have died. Almost 10,000 cases have been reported, across Liberia, Guinea, Sierra Leone, Nigeria and the United States.

Impossible to ignore, The Hot Zone is the terrifying, true-life account of when this highly infectious virus spread from the rainforests of Africa to the suburbs of Washington, D.C in 1989. A secret SWAT team of soldiers and scientists were quickly tasked with halting the outbreak. And they did. But now, that very same virus is back. And we could be just one wrong move away from a pandemic.

One of the most terrifying books I've ever read. Move over Stephen King and Michael Crichton - this really happened, within sight of the Washington Monument. And sooner or later it will happen again - Arthur C. Clarke

Reads like a nightmarish Stephen King thriller...It will keep you awake at night because you know that this is not a figment of the author's imagination - Today

A nightmarish scenario...dramatic...frightening - Daily Mail

The spookiest story of 1994...A terrifying premonition of what might come out of the woods - The Sunday Times

The first chapter of The Hot Zone is one of the most horrifying things I've read in my entire life...And then it gets worse. What a remarkable piece of work. I devoured it in two or three sittings and have a feeling the memories will linger a long time - Stephen King

“Absolutely fantastic”

Saw this reviewed in a newspaper recently and it is excellent - although it was written before the 2016 Ebola outbreak in Africa that isn't really an issue, as it's written by a chap who has been looking for... More
